The weekend is over and another great little trip is behind me. Only two days and 500km long, but to one of the most beautiful places where I travel every year at least once. It is the perfect destination in the late summer with mild mediterranean climate. Kamenjak which is a southern peninsula of Istria is kind of protected area, park of nature. One can be there only at daytime. For motor vehicles, it is necessary to pay a entrance fee. There is a lot of gravel roads to explore and beautiful flora and some flying fauna

As usual I forgot to take pictures of my transportation so this is the only bike centric picture taken before departure


There is plenty of camps and one of them is close by Kamenjak. I stayed there.

Kamenjak can offer many little gulfs, some densely populated many other nicely deserted.

Latest, very short trip 12km to my barn (party and resting place) in near hills.

The predator in it's natural environment


Zippy little thing with Malossi variator and plastic tyres. Obligatory anti-rain dance before departure.

Short ride for relaxation after all the obligations during the day.
This renovated stable is part of WW2 monument, If i remember correctly there was fight and the stable was hiding place for partizans.


This castle is very picturesque, but I was already late so better pictures some other time

I checked the map again and realized that right title for this thread should be: In the Groin of Europe

Just tell me which particular place are you interested in. Generally i'm from central Slovenia. Since we are the part of the EU and I find bordest too limiting ( nooo realyyy ) I mostly plan my trips inside of 300 km diameter.

Three passes in three hours

Three passes in three hours, it does not sound bad. Even though the atmosphere was not the most appropriate for the photo it was great for the riding.

First I showed my Aprilia where we go: Look boy there over the hills


Little later, we were in Kokra river walley


We saw beautiful traditional houses


And all the time we drove along the river

German bunkers from WW2 are densely scattered along the way. This valley was an important gateway to the Carinthia.




Jezersko village


With lake, but it was almost dry.

Nice alpine arhitecture


Almost at the top of the first pass. Living there surely is not an easy task


And first border passing. No control just remaining buildings from other times

Really nice riding with many twists. Perfect for supermoto.


If I only had clearer air. These are peaks from first image, but from the other side


On the top of the pass


Then down


And up to next pass and next border.
